2-C- TALEEM Workshops
TALEEM Workshop is a set of workshops designed for teachers to be well prepared for today’s
students and classroom needs. It focuses on four
essential topics: About the Student, Teaching &
Learning, Lesson Planning and Classroom Management.
AAF trained 50 nursery teachers of Nahdit El Mansouria; the teacher development training divided in two groups, 25 in two different days, on
seven selected sessions at Nahdit El Mansouris
premises. CHANGE is the only training company
which offers unique hands on training in this field
in Egypt. The topics are: Learning Styles, Multiple
Intelligence, the Brain, Classroom Management,
Behavior Management, Classroom Story Telling
28 | Al Alfi Foundation
and Classroom Art Project.
It is essential to connect with students and prepare the learning environment before teaching
and learning happens. Connection pre requisites
knowledge about the students various aspects of
development: cognitive, emotional, social, moral
and physical. It also requires the quest of knowledge about interests and needs and necessitates
the sincere dedication for the love of teaching.
When connection happens learning occurs. A
teacher acts as a facilitator of knowledge not a
dictator of knowledge. A teacher is an artist of
mind who enlightens and inspires young minds to
think righteously and creatively to become effective influential members in society.
Mission
- To qualify teachers to become human teachers.
- To prepare teachers to meet students’ needs and
accommodate differences.
- To assist them to become competent and adequate in their classroom.
- To inspire them to inspire their students with the
love of learning.
The teacher learns about the child and his needs,
educates himself/herself about subject matter and
its requirements and acquires more strategies to
apply and deliver the knowledge gained. Teaching
happens spontaneously when the teacher apply
the knowledge correctly and connects with the
students. Thus, a positive and joyful teaching and
learning experience happens which inspires the
student to learn more. The teacher feels the reward of teaching and works on developing skills
more. Learning is a contnious flow of knowledge
that takes place and rotates from teacher to student and back to the teacher which creates an on
going state of learning.
Teacher Professional Development
Learning is a continious aspect for self development and improvement. Professional development
is a teacher’s compass for growth and exellence.
Intention is the root of all goodness in education.
If the teacher is sincere about education and has
clear intention to teach young minds and to facilitate the learning process then she/he will have
perseverance to make all efforts and trials to deliver quality knowledge, then student learning will
naturally occur.
Philosophy of Education
- Every learner is different in the way he or she receives knowledge so we diversify our teaching strategies to
include the visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile learners.
- Every student is intelligent or gifted in a way or another so we diversify our learning tools and environment.
- Students learn best when they participate by saying and doing and that’s why our courses are based on
active and hands-on learning.
- Actual learning happens in a fun, joyful and welcoming environment.

3-G - The 21st World Conference for Gifted
& Talented Children
The World Council for Gifted and Talented Children held its 21st Biennial World Conference at
the Radisson Blu H.C. Andersen Hotel in Odense,
Southern Denmark. This unique international event
brings together leaders in the field of gifted and talented education every two years to promote communication among one another and share best
practices and experiences.
Al Alfi Foundation Parallel Session was on Wednesday 12th of August at 4:30 pm, under the topic of
Assessment, screening and identification
Abstract was:
Identifying gifted and talented students in science,
technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)
subjects is complicated because most identification schemes favor measures of verbal ability and
prior attainment.
The Al Alfi Foundation’s mission is to identify gifted
STEM students in Egypt nurtures their talents via
enrichment programmes and scholarships. They
need a reliable and accessible assessment that
ignores the impact of the variable quality of teaching experienced by applicants that might result in
40 | Al Alfi Foundation
exceptional students not being correctly identified.
There is strong evidence for the correlation between ability in spatial thinking and success in
STEM subjects. The Foundations tests a range of
cognitive abilities including verbal, non-verbal and
quantitative thinking but they particularly focus on
spatial ability as a marker of students with ability
in STEM.
The tests are taken in English or Arabic depending on school. Successful students are offered
advanced summer and after-school programmes
and each year 5 International Baccalaureate fellowships are provided. Scholarships are available
for undergraduate and post graduate students
who have demonstrated academic excellence in
qualifying subjects.
Analysis is ongoing but to date 93 scholars have
graduated from leading universities including Imperial College and Columbia University.
The Foundation believes that they have a replicable model that would support similar initiatives
elsewhere.
